Greek Architecture
Greek Architecture
Greek Architecture The architecture of ancient Greece is represented by buildings in the sanctuaries and cities of mainland Greece, the Aegean islands, southern Italy and Sicily, and the Ionian coast of Turkey. Monumental Greek architecture began in the archaic period, flourished through the classical and Hellenistic periods, and saw the first of many revivals during the Roman Empire. The roots of Greek architecture lie in the tradition of local Bronze Age house and palaces. The following paper

Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens Charles John Huffam Dickens was born February 7, 1812, in Ports Mouth, Hampshire. In his infancy his family moved to Chatham, where he spent his happiest years and often refers to this time in his novels (1817-1822). From 1822 to 1860 he lived in London, after which he permanently moved to a quiet country cottage in Glads Hill, on the outskirts of Chatham. He grew up in a middle class family. His father was a clerk in the navy pay office and was well paid, but his extravagant liv

Christopher Marlowe Christopher Marlowe: what did he contribute to English literature and how is his writing reflective of the style of the times? Christopher Marlowe contributed greatly to English literature. He developed a new metre which has become one of the most popular in English literary history, and he revitalised a dying form of English drama. His short life was apparently violent and the man himself was supposedly of a volatile temperament, yet he managed to write some of the most deli

Herman Wouk's The Winds of War
Herman Wouk\'s The Winds of War Response To Literature-- How Should One Read A Book? While reading Herman Wouk\'s classic tale, The Winds of War, I came across several passages describing a young man\'s vision of Germany. Although the author supplies me with his ideas, his desire and his provocative details on how this young Major views Germany at the time of the second world war, I still find myself wondering and questioning aspects of the written text before me. Apart from being drawn from my

Creative: In The Lamp Light After my first evening at Pine Vale, I decided I\'d never tell Howard Finley my name. I was sitting on a stone bench under the evergreens in the darkening twilight, inspecting the piece of wood that I\'d been carving. It was going to be a dog--maybe a German shepherd. I liked to shape things, not just whittle. I thought about smoking. Not thinking of actually doing it, mind you, only remembering. Over the years, liver spots had replaced the nicotine stains on my finge

Measure for Measure - Critique
Measure for Measure - Critique The Stratford Festival\'s rendition of Measure for Measure, one of Shakespeare\'s original problem plays, can only be called mediocre at best. While the drab, lifeless sets at first create an aura of poverty and des- titution that may or may not have been prevailent in 17th century Vienna, the lack of variety eventually tires the eyes, and begins to mildly irritate the senses. With the lack of colour present on stage, one would hope that the actor\'s performanc

The Baltics: Nationalities and Other Problems
The Baltics: Nationalities and Other Problems The Baltics area is fraught with cross ethnic mergings, conquerings by different groups, and control by both small groups like the Teutonic and Livonian knights and by larger entities like the nations of Sweden, Poland, and Russia during the roughly eight centuries of Baltic history. There is no ideal way to depict these very diverse groups of people and areas, so this is an attempt to first look at the area as a whole as it developed, in the brief
Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud Many believe Freud to be the father of modern psychiatry and psychology and the only psychiatrist of any worth. He is certainly the most well known figure, perhaps because sex played such a prominent role in his system. There are other psychologists, however, whose theories demand respectful consideration. Erik Erickson, born Eric Homburger, whose theories while not as titillating as Freud\'s, are just as sound. This paper will compare the two great men and their systems. In additi

Romanticism in the 19th Century
Romanticism in the 19th Century Romanticism began in the early 19th century and radically changed the way people perceived themselves and the state of nature around them. Unlike Classicism, which stood for order and established the foundation for architecture, literature, painting and music, Romanticism allowed people to get away from the constricted, rational views of life and concentrate on an emotional and sentimental side of humanity. This not only influenced political doctrines and ideology

Jim Morrison The Doors. There\'s the known. And there\'s the unknown. And what separates the two is the door, and that\'s what I want to be. Ahh wanna be th\' door. . . - Jim Morrison Jim Morrison is often thought of as a drunk musician. He is also portrayed to many as an addict and another \'doped up\' rock star. These negative opinions project a large shadow on the many positive aspects of this great poet. Jim\'s music was influenced heavily by many famous authors. You must cast aside your
